New 2017 Volkswagen Passat India Launch, Specs, Features, Price, Design, Images and more

With cars like the revamped Honda Accord to be launched in India, it is not a surprise that Volkswagen India is thinking of bringing the new Passat to the country. It is believed that the new 2017 Passat GTE India would be launched in India in the early part of 2017. The new generation Volkswagen Passat is already on sale internationally. Volkswagen plans to introduce the new Passat in Diesel, Petrol and Plug-in Hybrid variants. The new Volkswagen Passat made its India debut at the Auto Expo 2016 in New Delhi. The new Passat would  compete directly with the Honda Accord and  the Toyota Camry. The Camry Hybrid has already become a popular choice among Indian car buyers. Hence, it is quite obvious for car manufacturers to launch Hybrid variants in this segment. The new Passat’s hybrid would come with a  combination of a 1.4L TFSI petrol engine and an electric motor. The Petrol engine variant will be a 1.8-litre TFSI motor with a max. power of 180 BHP. The Diesel variant will sport a 2.0-litre engine.

Therefore the 2017 Passat Hybrid could carry a price tag of around Rs 40 Lakh.
